Sydney mum finds snake curled up in child’s bedroom


A Sydney mum has described how she found a snake curled up next to the toys in her child’s bedroom.

Meg, from Cammeray on the North Shore, was tidying her daughter’s room on Friday night after putting her children to bed, when she spotted what she thought was a shoe lace.

But when she turned the light on, she realised it was actually a snake.

“I thought it was a shoelace,” she told 2GB’s Ben Fordham.

“I thought ‘oh that’s a bit weird.

“I was actually going to pick it up and then I thought, ‘oh I’ll just turn the light on and see what it is.”

“It was actually a snake. I thought it couldn’t be a snake. Sure enough it was.”

In a video she took the snake seems to rear its head, as it slithers alongside toys including a Rubik’s Cube.

She said after looking at photo online, she thinks it was a golden crown snake, which is venomous, but rarely bites.

Plucky Meg released the snake outside.

NSW has vaccinated 10,000 frontline workers in a week


NSW has given more than 10,000 people their first doses of the coronavirus vaccine in a week.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian visited Westmead Hospital, where she said 48 people an hour are being vaccinated – and “that can be scaled up”.

In the first week at the three hubs in Sydney, there have been 10,339 jabs delivered to frontline health workers.

The premier said she was “really pleased with that result”, but asked the Federal Government to reveal when the state would get more doses.

“NSW is well on track to meet its target of 35,000 vaccines in the first three weeks,” she said.

“All we need are the doses to arrive.

“If we get more doses more people can receive the vaccine and that is our aim.

“We would like to know as soon as possible how many doses NSW is receiving.

“We would like some certainty. Beyond week four we’re waiting for that information.”

In comparison, on Friday Victoria said it had given out 3000 vaccines.

The Federal Government is handling vaccinations of aged care residents, with states inoculating health workers first.

Ms Berejiklian said she would get the AstraZeneca vaccine, which started to arrive in Australia over the weekend, adding it was an important step to returning to normal.

Bookings for the COVID-19 vaccine are done online via a “seamless” process, Ms Berejiklian said.

She said people are invited to make bookings when it is their turn.

She said the three hubs in Sydney could easily double capacity.

“We are ready to stand up and take on increased capacity if we have to,” she said.

Ms Berejiklian said she wants “incentives” for people to get the vaccine, such as being allowed to travel and being able to allow overseas students back.

“NSW certainly wants to stand up about being able to travel internationally,” she said.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard called the vaccine rollout a “wartime effort”.

He said NSW will help the Federal Government to roll out the vaccine in aged care, if it asked.

He said it was “obviously a challenging time” to give the vaccine out across what is a “large continent”.

Newcastle and Wollongong will be the first regional hubs to open in the state.

Melissa Caddick’s remains vital to confirming timeline of death


A leading Australian criminologist believes police will be able to determine when Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick died by examining her washed up remains.

DNA testing confirmed the foot belonged to Ms Caddick, however the second lot of remains are yet to be identified.

Human remains, potentially belonging to Melissa Caddick, have washed up on a beach in Mollymook.

Criminologist Dr Terry Goldsworthy said if investigators were able to date the remains, they should be able to tell how long they have been in the water and decomposing.

“It should give them some idea if they are looking something that occurred in the last week or two months ago,” he told Today.

“They should be able to pick that difference. That will assist them in terms of then determining where they focus their investigation.”

Offshore drift modelling found a body which entered the water near Ms Caddick’s home in Dover Heights, in Sydney’s affluent eastern suburbs, could have drifted to the South Coast over time.

Police combed through Cunjarong Point, about 30 kilometres north of Mollymook, with searches also continuing at Mollymook and Tathra.

Dr Goldsworthy said Ms Caddick’s remains raised possible theories of foul play, accidents and self harm.

“(Police) will still need to conduct those inquiries.”

The 49-year-old woman disappeared on November 12 last year after leaving her home for what her husband believed was a morning run at 5.30am.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) raided her home as part of an ASIC investigation the day before she disappeared.

Two Sydney police officers badly injured after separate incidents


A Sydney police sergeant is in hospital and a senior constable is recovering from facial fractures following two separate and disturbing incidents at the weekend.

During a brawl on a Sydenham street overnight, 21-year-old Andrew Cook allegedly attempted to punch an officer. He was arrested.

Minutes later his cousin, 33-year-old Tavite Mafi was booted from a nearby pub.

When police told him he couldn’t get back into the bar, he allegedly responded by punching a senior constable, breaking multiple bones in the officer’s face.

Meanwhile, 20km across the city, a second officer was seriously injured in a dog attack.

Police attended a property in Georges Hall in the city’s south-west about 1.30am on Sunday after reports of a domestic incident.

A 52-year-old man had allegedly barricaded himself in the garage with a dog.

He was arrested and the dog ran into the street.

It was secured by a 59-year-old woman also at the property, but as a police sergeant was speaking to her, the dog attacked and bit the officer on the face.

He was taken to hospital in a stable condition ahead of surgery.

“I just heard the other police saying ‘just cover your face, it’s going to be okay’,” witness Necah Kuyro told 9News.

The dog was seized by council officers.

“They got the dog, they put it on a rope … eventually one copper got it on a rope, sprayed it with mace,” witness Ronda Smith told 9News.

The 52-year-old man has been charged with common assault (DV), two counts of set on, urge dog to attack, bite, resist officer in execution of duty, and use offensive weapon with intent to commit indictable offence.

Both officers are now recovering. The sergeant is out of surgery and recovering in hospital; the constable is back home with a double facial fracture.

All three men involved across both incidents have been charged and all three granted bail.

Bizarre swap after car pileup has police baffled


When police arrived to the scene of a crash in Sydney’s south last night it appeared to be the best case scenario but CCTV revealing the moment of impact and what happened next has police perplexed.

Minutes from midnight on a quiet Planthurst road in Carlton, an Audi sedan ploughed in to a parked SUV.

When police arrived a short time later they found a driver unscathed.

However, video footage showing the initial crash has revealed the man they found was not the original driver of the car.

Seconds after the initial crash, a white van is shown pulling up beside the pile-up.

The driver of the van can be seen getting out in what appears to be a bizarre switch, with the driver who crashed vanishing in the van.

Moments later, a taxi arrives at the scene with passengers pouring out to help.

Paramedics were the next to arrive on scene, checking over a 46-year-old man uninjured by the impact and not under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

The CCTV footage is now in the hands of police as part of an investigation into whether the crash was an accident at all.

Owner of the parked Commodore, Kye Michelutti, is also hoping for answers after his car was seriously damaged during the incident,

“I just bought it, I just done a blue slip and a green slip for it,” he told 9News.

“The RTA have been having trouble registering it because of a problem with their system, if they let me rego it the other day it wouldn’t even be sitting there.”

Melissa Caddick investors likely to face ‘significant shortfall’


The mystery behind suspected Sydney fraudster, Melissa Caddick, is deepening following the grisly discovery of a second body part expected to be linked in the coming days through DNA testing.
The remains were found just hours after police revealed a foot belonging to the 49-year-old had washed up, on a remote stretch of beach on the NSW south coast.

The remains found last night at Mollymook are now undergoing analysis with officers close to the case telling 9News they’re likely linked to Caddick.

Human remains have been discovered washed up on Mollymook Beach in Shoalhaven. It’s not yet known whether they belong to missing Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick. (9News)

“There was mass of a fairly bleak substance that had a really peculiar stench to it,” local resident Craig O’Donnel told 9News.

Last night’s discovery turned up 200 kilometres north of where three teenagers found a shoe with remains inside last Sunday.

Experts had predicted a body which entered the water in Dover Heights on November 11 — the day Melissa went missing — could feasibly drift that far.

While the police investigation has now turned to compiling a report for the coroner, the probe into Caddick’s alleged fraud is continuing with the watchdog releasing a statement saying: “ASIC’s priority is to seek the return of funds to investors… the hearing should go ahead as a priority.”

Experts have told 9News many of Caddick’s investors, some of whom were also close friends of the missing woman, are unlikely to be reimbursed.

Melissa Caddick flaunted her luxury lifestyle with expensive clothes and pricey holidays making the seizing of assets to retrieve funds a near impossible task.

“Money which is spent on those things is gone, never to be recovered,” Innis Cull, Bankruptcy trustee and Liquidator from Pitcher Partners said.

Caddick’s investors have now been left out of pocket close to $25 million.

“There’s going to be a significant shortfall for the investors. Investors will line up behind the cost of the investigation,” Mr Cull said.

Melissa Caddick was last seen on November 12 last year, when she left home at 5.30am for what her husband believed was a morning run. (9News)

A hearing has been set for April when the Federal Court will also look to examine people close to Caddick’s business.
